Rip currents do occur on a daily basis — we strongly recommend swimming in the designated lifeguard area. Please note that state park passes purchased from the State Department of Conservation and Bureau of Parks and Lands are not valid at Scaborough Beach State Park.
WE HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR DRUG USE AND DRUNKENNESS. Please do not block parking lot or driveway so that fire and rescue equipment can go where they need to go. The medical center is close by and an ambulance is only minutes away. Pick up all garbage around your camping area and place it in a nearby trash bin, not in the fire rings. You can throw them off the end of the dock at night. We recycle cardboard, newspaper, cans, and bottles, please place them in the trash bin next to the office, bring returnable bottles and cans to the bin as well. Use the established trails in the woods to help preserve the natural beauty around you. You know your abilities better than we do, so strong swimmers only please. Please leave the frogs and the frogs' eggs alone, and do not disturb the turtle! If you must smoke, do so in an open area, but preferably not around others who may choose not to inhale secondhand smoke.
This facility is operated by Black Point Resource Management LLC in a public/private partnership.
Visitors may find some variations in policies, fees, and procedures compared to other state parks and historic sites.
Clean up any messes you make in the bathhouse, even "little floods" around the sink. If any of our resident raccoons, red squirrels or foxes make your acquaintance, please don't feed them. If they smell food in your tent they will try to get in even if you are in it! Fires should not be smoldering if you are not there.
The only totally safe place for food is in your car. Please build fires only in the designated fire rings located around the campsites and leave no fires unattended. If there is a drought then fires may not be allowed.
